KEY TO LIFE GRATITUDE AND BALANCE.
Dr. Darrell J. Morin, B Sc, DC
Welcome to my bio! I graduated from U of Alberta with a B.Sc. in biochemistry. I loved biochemistry so much I almost pursued a career in it. After some thought I realized I enjoyed working with people much more than microscopes. I still find that background very helpful when counseling patients on nutrition. There is so much misinformation out there. A solid science background helps one separate the wheat from the chaff quickly when providing nutrition advice. I then went to chiropractic school in Portland Oregon. I really enjoyed my four years there; great school and lots of hiking, swimming and mountain biking.
I have been in practice here at South Edmonton Chiropractic for 26 years and love it. There is a tremendous void in common sense in our society as it relates to issues in nutrition, physical activity and life style. It's great to be able to fill that gap in knowledge with information that is not influenced by drug companies or selling a product. We do carry a few common supplements but mostly I refer to other practitioners or stores where services or products can be accessed if required.
In my off time I like to train for triathlons and have completed several small triathlons and three Iron Man events; two in Canada and once at the World Championships in Kona Hawaii. Priorities have shifted to my wife Sarah and our three boys in recent years. My more senior patients and long time wellness clients are quick to point out that children don't stay young for long so cherish every moment. I feel blessed to have such wonderful people who come to our office and for all the advice I often receive in return!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the website. If we seem like a good fit for your health care needs then I'll see you soon; if not, feel free to ask a question on-line or sign up for the health tips that are updated every month. The part of our website that I love the most is the Wellness Blog. I really love researching health topics and sharing them with people. I find that I don't always have time to tell each patient all that they may benefit from (plus it's a tad boring repeating the same thing). The wellness section changes every week or two and is usually focused on nutrition. They are great and may enhance or even save your life or the life of someone you love, so pass it on.
Warm Regards, Dr. Darrell

Dr. Michael Robinson D.C.
I?ve been a licensed Chiropractor since 2014. I trained in the US at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa. In my practice I incorporate manual and activator adjusting as well as a variety of soft tissue release techniques. I also incorporate many techniques from my basic certification in Professional Applied Kinesiology.
In my practice I focus on listening to the body and finding those chiropractic adjustments that move the body towards strength and flexibility. I like to show the connection between the cause of the problem and the resulting symptoms. I find it helpful to demonstrate through various objective and subjective measures such as range of motion, pain reduction, and strength testing how chiropractic adjustments, targeted stretches, and custom exercises can be beneficial.
On a personal note I just recently became a father to my son Ulysses. When I?m not at work or helping take care of him I enjoy playing board games with my friends and practicing martial arts like judo or BJJ the second of which I have a blue belt in. I?m very pleased to be working at South Center Chiropractic.
